It is indeed a worthy movie, but since it grossed more than $10 million in the U.S., it just didn’t make this particular list.
Apologies for the typo — it’s been fixed.
Hi. It’s number 55.
Hi — It means young adult.
Hi — As the headline states, these are limited to feature films released by Marvel Studios. They are part of the unified “Marvel Cinematic Universe.” Those other characters are not.
The end credits for Guardians note specifically that the dog is Cosmo, who is a character in the Marvel comics.
Two movies directed by Bigelow, including The Hurt Locker, are included in the quiz.
Hi — Thanks for pointing that out about “Into the Woods” — it’s been fixed. FWIW, I only counted when a character appeared as her or himself, and as a spell, dream, or The First.
Thanks for catching that!
Thanks for pointing out — it’s been fixed!
It’s been corrected — thank you for catching that!
Hi — As I note in the intro, “[T]here are also a handful of special exceptions for standout characters in just one or two episodes who have significant arcs of their own.”
Hi gev16 — We decided it was too late to mention the Gone With the Wind, but appreciate your enthusiasm!
Ack, good catch! It’s fixed.
Hi Gabriel — Neither of those films received a theatrical release in the United States, so they did not factor into our calculations.
Hi — Marvel Studios is an independent film production company that make their own movies, starting with 2008’s Iron Man, whereas Spider-Man and the X-Men are Marvel properties licensed to Sony Pictures and 20th Century Fox, respectively. Marvel Studios has nothing to do with those films.
Thank you for picking up on that — I have corrected the post accordingly!
I am just so profoundly grateful I do not get migraines.
Late night posting gaffe! Fixed! Thank you!
At 6,455 tweets and counting, not even close to my last tweet.
Hello Carmen! I auditioned for that production! I was not cast, sadly, but I remember the whole event quite fondly. It was one of my inspirations for writing this story!
Hi sylgui — There were no humiliating flops (or broken box office records) this weekend — there were plenty of both this summer.
Hi â€” Most sources say he was born on July 3.
Hello! The post has been updated with a working version of the teaser trailer.
Since there was a Tribble in the 2009 Star Trek, I wanted to concentrate on Easter Eggs we hadn’t seen before.
Hello Daniy — As I note in the story, you can find a list of Dolby Atmos theaters here. It includes locations in California, Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, Nevada, New York, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Washington. Hopefully one of them is close to you.
You are totally correct, and the post has been corrected. I got my British actors named Andrew confused. Apologies for the error.
Yeah, the breaking news here is that the guy on the left disappeared into thin air!
Nope. In fact, Bruce Campbell only felt comfortable getting involved once Fede Alvarez pitched not including Ash.
This is maybe the worst movie ever made.
Hi Leigh Ann — You are totally right that no one has outright denied the existence of this film, as I noted in the story above. What was just silly was the fast-spreading news that Disney and Pixar had officially announced the movie for 2015. They hadn’t, and they wouldn’t, for the reasons I outlined.
Kissing Jessica Stein came out in 2001, four years before Brokeback Mountain, and it was produced independently, not by a studio.
For the love of…HERE is the link. Honestly. (I’m new!) http://www.buzzfeed.com/adambvary/anne-hathaway-and-jennifer-lawrence-pick-food-befo
Crud, posted before I finished my thought. As I was saying, we covered Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence’s experience at the luncheon already, so we figured we’d give some other nominees a chance in the spotlight: http://www.buzzfeed.com/adambvary/the-complete-annotated-oscar-nominees-class-photo
